RULE §221.20License Renewal

(a) A salvage vehicle dealer license together with its endorsements and any salvage vehicle agent licenses expire on the anniversary of the date of issuance of the salvage vehicle dealer license.

(b) The salvage vehicle dealer license, together with any endorsements and any salvage vehicle agent licenses, may be renewed for an additional period of 12 months upon timely submission of a renewal application on a form approved by the department with all required information and attachments, if applicable, and the required fees. A renewal application is considered "timely" submitted if the renewal application with all required information and attachments, if applicable, and required fee are received by the department on or before the expiration date of the existing license.

(c) The department will send an expiration notice to a salvage vehicle dealer's mailing address at least 30 days before expiration of a license. The expiration notice for salvage vehicle agent licenses will be sent to the authorizing salvage vehicle dealer's mailing address.

(d) Failure by the department to send written notice under this section does not relieve a license holder from timely renewing a license.

(e) The renewal fee for salvage vehicle dealer or salvage vehicle agent license is $85.

(f) A license holder may renew an expired license by submitting a renewal application and paying a late renewal fee of $42.50 for each endorsement in addition to the renewal fee, if 90 or fewer days have elapsed since the license expired.

(g) A license holder may renew an expired license by submitting a renewal application and paying a late renewal fee of $85 for each endorsement, in addition to the renewal fee, if more than 90 days but less than one year has elapsed since the license expired.

(h) If a license has been expired for a period of one year or longer and the department is not in receipt of a renewal application with all required information and attachments and the renewal fees for each endorsement, the license holder must apply for a new license in the same manner as an applicant for an initial license.

(i) If the department is not in receipt of a renewal application with all required information and attachments and the applicable renewal fee prior to the cancellation date of the license, a salvage vehicle dealer and any salvage vehicle agents may not engage in the activities that require the license until the license has been renewed by the department.
